One year after movie star Joseph Strike swept schoolteacher Alice off her feet, they are spending Christmas together in snowy Cambridge. But despite the romantic setting Alice can’t help but question whether life in the spotlight is really what she wants. Will a Christmas provide some perspective? Or will the life she’d be leaving behind be too much to lose?

In this irresistible collection, bestselling author Paige Toon reunites a much-loved cast from across her fifteen novels, including Johnny Be GoodThe One We Fell In Love With and Thirteen Weddings. Fall in love with nine witty and heartfelt romantic stories, published in print for the very first time.


Each short has an intro telling readers more about the link and why Paige Toon wrote them.  If you haven’t read any of Paige Toon’s previous books don’t worry.  Each short story is complete in itself and makes sense.  I haven’t read Chasing Daisy (but I still found it an emotive story, connecting with the characters) or The One We Fell in Love With.

I loved being back in the worlds that Paige Toon creates and how the stories link.  When Lily met Alice took me right back to Thirteen Weddings; Bridget’s Beach Proposal had my heart singing and brought tears;  A Christmas Wedding was also very emotional (almost half the length of a full length novel)!  There’s even an exclusive mini sequel for Laura and Leo from The Longest Holiday (one of my Paige Toon favourites).

For new readers, One Perfect Christmas and other stories will give you a taster of Paige Toon’s writing style.  For fans, it’s a fabulous collection of shorts (which you may have read via The Hidden Paige) all in one place. 🙂
